Now here's some fun news for the weekend:


Quote:
Independent studio Mutant Entertainment has offered a new title, I Can't Believe It's Not Gambling, that parodies the idea of loot boxes in gaming. The premise is straightforward: opening loot boxes. Players are able to unlock new skins and hats for their "Lootbox Loadout" in the title.
Quote:
Do you love opening loot crates, but hate the tedious gameplay sessions in between? Our marketing department has the game for you! Unbox random items! Get stuff, but not what you really want! Skate legal and ethical lines! Remember kids, it's only a video game, so grab your parents credit card!
Source.

The meta-icing on the meta-cake? It's on sale!

So uh... does the in-game currency actually cost real money or do you just run a virtual "mom's credit card" to get more in-game currency?

If they are trying to make real-world money on micro-transactions within a game that is making a parody of loot boxes because they are unethical (and all that), my pitchfork is sharpened and my torch is re-fueled

It's got 95% positive reviews. Almost as good as Half-life 2.

If Bliz had game rating implemented in their store, I'm sure Overwatch would be 95% positive too

Even at 99 cents this is a waste of money. Shower with your Dad simulator is a better value.

I bought it today, will do a review on it next week. It's actually decently made and fun. If you pay attention to Jim Sterling's video, you'll realise that there's a very easy way to game the system to avoid running out of credits.

Is that the one with the random "shower suddenly runs out of hot water" feature?

Regardless, I'll pass if you don't mind.

This is a 98 cent joke, that is all.

It's fun, actually. Best $0.99 I've spent on Steam.

If you don't find the humor and satire in it, then pass. If you do, it's only $0.99.

Also, the Christmas DLC is out.

Free DLC is tremendous value.
